Convenient, but pricey

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Well, if you buy a pre-made wiring package, you're not really paying for the wire, are you? You're paying for someone to measure off the two pieces of wire and cut them, then bundle them up all nice with a zip tie. You're paying for someone to hand pick a couple capacitors and put them and that bundle of wire into a nice package. You're paying for convenience and good wire. If you want lots of wire, go to a hardware store or buy a larger spool.

If you don't need much...

I love Stew-Mac in general but I think they could add about 25% more length and still make a good margin. I ran out of white a bit soon.

Little wire to work with

Go to another supplier. Rip off artists here on wiring.

Waste Of Money

Very little wire for the money.

Great kit! It doesn't contain a whole lot of wire, but then again, I was wiring an Ibanez S series- the control cavity is tiny. I had more than enough to get it done.

Overpriced for what you get

Like others have said, you get very little wire in this kit. I had to order 2 kits just to properly wire one strat.

Would like to see a bit more wire for the price

By Kelly Jamison from Texas

unless you bundle with a large order it is barely worth it just buying the wire kit by itself. OK for a Strat but for anything more you could probably need to buy two kits and then the value goes down dramatically.

Basic wiring

A bit high when including shipping, and could use a bit more wiring especially for les Paul. But ok in the end

It is as stated, a basic kit. Had just enough wire for a Telecaster.Shipping doubled the price, so it was expensive for what you get.
